With most TV boxes, you can connect both rabbit ears and digital antennas. Ensure you plug the antenna's coaxial cable into the Antenna In (RF) port located at the back of the TV box. If the cable is incompatible with the box's input port, acquire an adapter to bridge the connection.

The TV box should connect to your TV using one of the following three connectors: an S-Video cable, an RCA cable or a coaxial cable. If you're using a coaxial cable, plug one end of the cable into the Out To TV port located at the back of the TV box, and plug the other end into the Antenna In (RF) port on your TV. If you're using an RCA cable, connect the red, yellow and white cables into the appropriately colored input ports on the TV. If you're using an S-Video cable, plug it into the S-Video port on the TV.
